Since ancient times the Muga family has been linked to viticulture. Already in 1870 Antonio and Baltasar Muga received an award for the quality of their wines from the then Ministry of Public Works.
But the origin of the current winery dates back to 1932, when winemaking began in a typical winery in the old part of Haro, the capital of the Rioja Alta. 40 years later, Isaac Muga Martinez bought a 19th century mansion in the emblematic Barrio de la Estación in that city. Soon after, in 1969, he died and his sons Manuel and Isaac, the ones in charge of taking the reins of the familiar business, to which today the children of these are incorporated.
In its about 25,000 square meters everything revolves around the oak. Bodegas Muga has four fermentation rooms with 90 wooden tubs whose capacities vary from 3,000 to 15,000 kilos of capacity. Thanks to this wide range of possibilities, grapes can be vinified individually according to their quality and vineyard of origin.
Bodegas Muga is one of the few Spanish wineries that has its own cooperage. Three coopers and a cubero are in charge of working the oak wood.
